Meanwhile, PSL CEO, Brand de Villiers, extended his condolences to the family of the late Masinga.

“It is always sad to bid farewell to some of the individuals who made a contribution to our football. We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr Masinga and the Moroka Swallows family at large,” said De Villiers in a statement.
